Constructive Criticism Temporarily Halts Toll Project

Bali Lawmakers Order Halt on Benoa to Nusa Dua Toll Road Over Concerns that Access Roads are Poorly Designed

(6/28/2012) Construction of Bali’s new toll road connecting Benoa and Nusa Dua may be facing delays following a surprise inspection by Bali legislators (DPRD-Bali).

Following that visit, legislators expressed concern that the highway, as it is currently designed, will cause traffic jams from overflow to existing roadways as motorists line up at toll booths, a formal letter was issued on Monday, June 25, 2012, calling for construction to stop on the highway access at Nusa Dua and the airport until lawmaker’s concerns can be addressed.

Officials in charge of the project have promised a project review in order to make sure that cars lining up to use the new toll road do not result in traffic jams on the existing road ways.

Legislators were quick to underline that their call to halt construction affects only small areas of the entire project and should not cause delays, if addressed in a timely manner, on a project scheduled for completion in time for the APEC conference in 2013.
